    To my friends with Children: Why parents drink

A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had
not phoned in sick one day. Having an
urgent problem with one
of the main computers, he dialed the employee's home
number and was greeted with a child's whisper. ' Hello ? '

your daddy home?' he asked.

' Yes ,' whispered the small voice.
May I
talk with him?'
The child whispered, ' No .'
Surprised and wanting to talk
with an adult, the boss asked,
'Is your Mommy there?' ' Yes .'

'May I
talk with her?' Again the small voice whispered, ' No .'

Hoping there was
somebody with whom he could leave a message,
the boss asked, 'Is anybody else

' Yes ,' whispered the child, ' a policeman '.

what a cop would be doing at his employee's home,
the boss asked, 'May I
speak with the policeman?'

' No, he's busy ', whispered the

'Busy doing what?'

' Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the
Fireman ,' came the whispered answer.

Growing more worried as he heard a
loud noise in the background through
the earpiece on the phone, the boss
asked, 'What is that noise?'

' A helicopter ' answered the whispering

'What is going on there?' demanded the boss, now truly
Again, whispering, the child answered, ' The search team just
landed a
helicopter ..'

Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the
boss asked, 'What are they
searching for?'

Still whispering, the
young voice replied with a muffled giggle... ' ME ..'

Thanks Vincent,

The Grins, the Giggles and especially the ear-to-ear Smiles make the day just seem to float by without a worry.


Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the driveway before it has stopped snowing.

"There is only one pretty child in the world and every mother has it." -- Chinese Proverb

Mothers of teens know why animals eat their young.

Children will soon forget your presents; they will always remember your presence.

Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.

The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own.

We child-proofed our home 3 years ago and they're still getting in!

Be nice to your kids. They'll choose your nursing home.

Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your children.

Insanity is hereditary. You get it from your kids.

You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can never fool a Mom.

I love to give homemade gifts...which one of my kids do you want?

A child's greatest period of growth is the month after you've purchased new school clothes.

Anyone who says "Easy as taking candy from a baby" has never tried it.

Children: You spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 telling them to sit down and be quiet.

The best inheritance parents can give their children is a few minutes of their time each day.

Keep 'Em Smiling My Friend,


“There may be trouble all around, but I am calling you to a place of peace. Be still and know that I am God. Come to Me, and I will give you wisdom, strength, and grace for everything you face." Psalm 46:10
